Like the rest of the restaurants along this strip at The Beach, Poco Loco is a lovely, ambient spot, and inside it’s just as appealing to the eye. An eclectic mix of materials are brought together giving it a rawness that still feels chic. Although broadly speaking Latin American, the menu focuses primarily on Mexican and Peruvian dishes. Start with the recommended bowl of bright guacamole and two types of corn chip (blue and classic), while you make up your mind on the rest of the order. Tacos made Mexican-style with soft, fresh shells are stuffed with a deliciously sour and spicy combination of rock shrimp tempura and jalapeño. The ambitious “tostados” are created with a huge flat blue corn chip (with a dense, nutty flavour) and a bright, summery topping of minisculely diced lobster, mango and chilli. Don’t miss the meaty yet silken flesh of the Patagonian toothfish with a zingy garlic and caper-packed sauce, and team it with the aromatic and buttery “green rice” doused in coriander. The place looks fun and young without trying too hard. In fact, we’d say the same for Poco Loco in general, which ticks boxes without you feeling like anything is too much effort. A good new addition to JBR.
